Respite care is a short-term care option that allows you to benefit from one-to-one home support from an expert carer on a temporary basis – typically up to five weeks. At Helping Hands, our compassionate, person-centred home care has been enabling our customers to maintain their independence through all manner of circumstances. We’ve got over 30 years’ experience in providing respite care to people across England and Wales, so it’s safe to say we’re experts when it comes to providing meaningful, personalised support.
Whether you’ve had an accident, have been discharged early from hospital, or your carer is simply taking a well-earned break, respite care provides you with a source of help when you most need it. You’ll be able to continue living life in your own home and on your own terms, meaning you can either focus on your recovery or continue doing the activities and routines you really enjoy – as well as being able to see loved ones when you wish. Of course, it’s not always possible to anticipate when you might require respite care – so our Swadlincote team will endeavour to have one of our superb carers in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call, ensuring you’re not left feeling isolated or unsupported.
When it comes to respite care, we know you’ll like things to be done in a certain way – whether you’re receiving practical support, personal care, or any other type of assistance. Our approach to care is always personal, and focuses on placing the individual customer’s needs and wishes at the centre of every decision so that you’ve got a care plan that is truly built around your unique circumstances and condition. That way, you won’t be paying for extra care that you don’t need, you won’t be under-supported, and your carers can assist you in the areas you really need it. And, should your requirements change, we can make any changes to your support that might be necessary.
At Helping Hands Swadlincote, our carers truly are at the heart of everything that makes our care services so popular, and that’s because we’re so particular about who we recruit to our care team. We only hire the most compassionate, dedicated carers, and every applicant must undergo a series of stringent background checks so that we can make sure they’ll be a perfect fit for us and for you. When they join the team in Swadlincote, all of our carers are enrolled on our comprehensive, expert-led training and assessment programme, where they’ll spend four days learning how to provide truly exceptional home care services to people with varying needs. And, to ensure you can use our services with full peace of mind, every aspect of your respite care will be independently regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
